What do you say to your kid, just before a big moment?
"Let me look at you."
You say that because you are proud of your kid. You want to affirm him. You want to encourage her.
And you delight in them. There is power in your gaze. You are not judging, not looking for fault. You are taking in the beauty, the power, the presence of your child.
It is a moment outside of time. You take a deep breath. Of course your kid has to cooperate. They stop, stand still. They look at you. You are together in heart and spirit. It overflows with joy.
God is saying to you, "Let me look at you." Stop and be with him. Feel the power. Overflow with joy.
He loves you.
